Musician, producer, DJ, and photographer Moby will host the Photo l.a. opening night gala with guest DJ Aaron Byrd from KCRW. According to the organizers, “Continuing the discourse on photography’s place in the fine arts, photo l.a. provides dealers from around the globe a platform for the exhibition of vintage masterworks, contemporary photography, as well as video and multimedia installations.” Photo l.a. is a four day event which takes place January 13 – 16, 2012 at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. The opening night gala takes place Thursday, January 12, 2012, 6pm – 9pm, and benefits the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for programming at the Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography.
